    We just stopped at a dealer in Santa Monica and put our deposit on an S Performance model.We were convinced after a test drive. Currently I drive a Jaguar XK convertible. The Tesla is every bit as much of a beast when you accelerate if not more.

    Congratulations! I hope to place my reservation sometime in 2013 once the supercharger network is more developed in the midwest. I can't wait. The future of motoring is here!

    Imagine what the oil companies must be thinking if Tesla can successfully build a network of free solar-powered supercharging stations so that Tesla owners can traverse the country and not have to pay a cent for energy?

    You have a great point. I'm sure that over the next 10 years the Oil companies will increase their position in capturing alternative forms of energy. Can you imagine if every Shell station across the USA offered some kind of supercharger right alongside the normal pumps! It's what I believe will be the future of automotive propulsion.

    Electric cars is another way to energy independence. We don't need petroleum to create electricity. We can use natural gas.

    Supposedly (TSLA) put up charging stations every 100 miles or so up and down California. Even better, the charge is free. And their new sedan is like $60,000.
